I really like this... Esper Sentinel combined with Stoneforge Mystic.... looks gross... +1

MaximumEdgeLord, have you considered cards like Charming Prince or Spirit of the Labyrinth as substitutes for Arbiter? Charming Prince works very well with Aether Vial, Ephemerate, Stoneforge Mystic or other creatures with ETB effects.

Suggestions ans thoughts regarding your development based on my games and changes so far so far:

Plaguecrafter I found it to be immensely useful against planeswalker-focused decks which I didn't really have an answer to before but is still perfectly fine as a mini sacrification forcer. I just got Graf Reaver from a booster, but I don't know if the targeted removal will do any better. I think not, mostly because most players habe three planeswalkers at most.

I also use Reassembling Skeleton to make my life easier while I haven't found Winding Canyons or Vedalken Orrery yet. Sacking it in loop for two mana a pop to force the enemies to sacrifice is much easier than to try and spare my creatures for the perfect moment. If no sacrifice pact is on the field, it still makes good use of excess mana.

Helm of Possession is also nice to get rid of opponents creatures, or just to pull in more sac fodder that isn't even ours. It's not as cheap as I'd like though and doesnt scale particularly well. I haven't tested how it plays but I think it could work out.

Mind Slash works as a supplememt to sadistic hypnotist and replaced grief for me. I didn't like grief for its high recasting cost, so I put this in and throw cheap stuff at it.

Consider Library of Leng to make the effect of Mindslicer completely irrelevant to you. I saw that you removed the reliquary tower; I did the opposite and additonally play a Thought Vessel. Is there a reason you removed the tower? I think it has no downsides.

For the last part I currently run Nullpriest of Oblivion but consider replacing it with Doomed Necromancer. They're both cheap enough and I like to have yet another cog to protect Liesa (well, or get her back for cheap), as well as fetch stuff that went in the graveyard unprotected.

I really like the Tourach, Dread Cantor you put in, I think I'll get him as well. Not sure if I'm willing to pay the 25 bucks for the Stoneforge Mystic, it doesn't seem powerful enough to me. I also removed Alms Collector and didn't miss him so far.

I love your suggestions and yes I agree some of the creatures I thought were good but in hindsight weren't a good fit but some creatures like Stoneforge Mystic or Halvar, God of Battle  Flip are very valuable since I run a voltron style and they help get certain equipment or place them at instant speed if need be so I don't want to do just a creature free build.

PurePwnage on Kira, Great Glass-Spinner's interaction with …

Hello,

I am attempting to build a UW Stoneblade deck with Stoneforge Mystic, Batterskull, Kaldra Compleat, Maul of the Skyclaves, etc.

The question is in regards to playing artifacts using the living weapon keyword ability while Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is on the battlefield and under our control.

Is it safe to assume the since living weapon does not specifically target, casting spells such as Batterskull or Kaldra Compleat will succed and either will become attached to there respective germ token without the equip/attach getting countered by Kira?

I agree with zapyourtumor, without Ephemerate or Flickerwisp, Leonin Arbiter seems to be anti-synergistic with Stoneforge Mystic. I have played dozens of games with the similar mono-white variant and lost many of these games due to the Arbiter locking me out of searching for my win-conditions.

And if you find cards like Cathar Commando and Ranger captain to be underperforming you can always take them out for the Stoneforge Mystic package with Kaldra Compleat and Batterskull.

Personally, Commando looks like more of a sideboard card anyways.

Hey JrtGil, thanks for your comment!! I’m glad you enjoy the deck, it is quite brutal!

I appreciate the suggestion of Kaldra Compleat. I love the card and have run it before in earlier Stoneblade builds. The reason why I chose not to run it in this deck is because it almost impossible to cast without cheating it in with Stoneforge Mystic. The Hammers, Plating, and Spear are easily hard-casted, and their equip costs are mitigated by Sigarda's Aid and Puresteel Paladin. Kaldra usually sits dead in my hand until I draw a Mystic, then the Mystic has to survive a turn before I can cheat-in Kaldra. So the Mystic’s function is tutoring for an equipment more so than cheating-in costly equipment. It’s easier to pull-off Kaldra in Stoneblade decks which run more control and disruption to protect their Mystics.

At first I didn’t appreciate the power of Giver of Runes, but now I realize that she is equally both offensive and defensive. I can make my hammer-wielder unblockable against mono/double-colored decks, which is arguably better than trample, or protect my hammer-wielder against removal. Cards like Prismatic Ending are rampant in Modern right now, and if I can’t protect my equipment, I can at least protect my Paladins and keep digging for more hammers.

I only run a single Shadowspear, since I can stack all the equipment on a single creature, and that creature will trample over the opponent’s blocker. I go for the spear later than the Hammers, so the opponent will use up their removal on a Hammer, and I can easily find another one.

I wouldn’t discount Cranial Plating either. This deck plays artifacts rapidly. I can attach Plating at instant speed by generating black mana with Springleaf Drum and Silent Clearing, and even attach it to a flyer or Inkmoth with flying and infect, killing in one shot.
